Lightroom Tips

Scott Kelby Tip Week Day 3 – Copy Settings Tip

Here’s another tip from Scott today. Back story: I’m teaching a couple of 1-day Lightroom seminars on the west coast (LA and San Francisco) I figured it would be hard to keep up with the blog. So to help Scott celebrate the release of his brand new Lightroom 3 Book for Digital Photographers I’m snagging a few tips from his book all week long.

Here’s a cool tip when you want to copy the settings from one photo to paste to another. When you click the Copy button in the Develop module (at the bottom of the left side Panels area), it brings up a Copy Settings dialog asking which edits you want to copy. However, if you know you want to copy the same edits as you had previously (maybe you always copy everything), then you can skip having that Copy Settings dialog pop-up completely by pressing-and-holding the Option (PC: Alt) key, then clicking the Copy button (it will change from “Copy…” to just the word “Copy”).

Thanks again to Scott for letting me steal his tips this week. If you’d like to check out his new book (and a freebie disc of all my LR presets that comes with it) you can find it right here.
